Smoker is a "hands on approach" guy and i can bet anything that his character is designed to balance marine deficiencies. i will draw a parallel to real world fight against terrorism where under the pretense of fighting for justice a lot of innocent people loose theirs lives. he is aware of the situation but he don't have power to change much for now... as i said before he will "Harvey Dent "Vergo but i don't think that he care much about marine honor he cares more for true justice and if he think that he can make difference he will try to influence marines from the inside. about his strength, i am almost 100 % sure that Oda designed Smoker to show character development which would eventually show us his rise to admiral level char that will play major role in final arc... Im almost 100% positive that Oda intentionally nerfed Smoker here for the sole purpose of future envelopment and showcase of Laws power
Honestly, I feel he'll just end up in Impel Down after everything on Punk Hazard finishes up. I don't really see what else could happen.
Smoker seems to be really similar to Magellan idealogically, so I think Smoker would be confident that Magellan should be enough to detain Vergo.
